"Bluegrass Signal" Celebrates Boxing Day!


Saturday's “Bluegrass Signal” is broadcast on Boxing Day (Dec. 26th), so it seems appropriate to celebrate music from north of the 49th parallel -- Canada -- where Boxing Day has become a time to celebrate friends and food, music and merriment.
Broadcast from 6:30 - 8:00 pm on Dec. 26th.
Archived until Jan. 2nd at www.KALW.org/local-music-player (select 'Bluegrass Signal’).
